March 8, 2020 – May 24, 2020
The Wharton Esherick Museum is pleased to announce Imprint 2020, our 12th annual high school print competition. Open to students from Chester, Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties, this exhibition encourages new generations of young artists in the powerful medium of relief printmaking.
For Wharton Esherick, woodcut printmaking was a critical medium in his artistic development. Through printmaking, Esherick transitioned from a young painter to an internationally recognized artist and furniture designer. Recognizing the important role printmaking played in Esherick’s life, we are delighted to highlight these young artists exploring Esherick’s legacy and the rich artistic vision he expressed through woodblock prints.
Exhibitions in our Visitor Center are free to the public. This does not include admission to the Museum for which advance reservations are required.
